How do you measure up?

Discovery Place Science

Robert Wadlow is the world’s tallest man who grew to be 8 feet 11 inches tall. Discovery Place Science wants to see how the Carolinas measure up! 

Throughout the summer, guests can measure themselves inside Discovery Place Science and then register their height and contact information at the Museum’s measuring station, located on Level 2 near The Science of Ripley's Believe It or Not!®.  

The top three tallest men and top three tallest women will be invited back to Discovery Place Science on Saturday, September 2, for an official measurement, where one man and one woman will be awarded the biggest prize in Discovery Place history: a lifetime Membership to Discovery Place Science! 

To be eligible to win, guests must be residents in of North or South Carolina.
